Sigil Emporium – Last Guardian’s Grimoire

Some men obtain power, some take it, others are granted it, and a few are born with it. The original owner of this Grimoire certainly fell into the last category. Born with an innate arcane talent that dwarfed any who came before or after him, the young mage was meant for great things. He certainly rose to his potential and became a Guardian of the whole mortal realm, protecting it from those across the aether who wished to do it harm, and steering the course of history simply by being the most powerful mortal in existence. However, power not only corrupts, it attracts corruption like a light does moths. The toxin

Sigil Bestiary – Death Knight

Death Knights are evil incarnate. Born of dark magic, a Death Knight is the most recent in a long line of evil warriors that stalk the world, each one raising the next Death Knight in line. These twisted warriors wish only to bring wrath and ruin to mankind, compelled as they are by the necromantic magics coursing through their undead veins. A Death Knight caught by himself is a force to be reckoned with, but like a snowball, the longer he is left to gather momentum, the more dangerous he becomes. As he himself was raised to unlife, so can the Death Knight create more undead to serve him as his

Sigil Emporium – Platonic Philosopher

Ripping a soul from a person and planting it within a crystal is considered by many to be an utterly evil act. This resulting Soul Gem is incredibly powerful and can power many alchemical and arcane abilities. Soul Gems can also be used to cheat death. A few sages have discovered the ancient secret of locking your soul into a crystal matrix where the sage can still observe and communicate with the world after death. Whether through design or necessity, these fist-sized crystal matrices always take the form of platonic solids, leading to the unoriginal name of calling them platonic gems. The sages within these gems cannot directly interact with the

Sigil Bestiary – Messenger Angel

The divine beings rarely speak to the mortal realm, preferring to remain in their heavens for a variety of reasons. Often it is pride and arrogance, not wishing to debase themselves to speak to mortals; and other times it is to protect the mortals from being exposed to their awesome divine might and being driven mad at the very sight of a god. Whatever the reason, it often falls to angels to deliver news to the mortal realms, whether it be good or bad news. Messenger Angels are an extension of their divine creator. Partly sentient, partly independent, partly divine. Like a shard chipped off from a greater crystal, they bear

Sigil Emporium – Onyx Lotus

It is a rather innocuous looking thing, seeming nothing more than a trinket carved out of black onyx chalcedony to resemble a lotus flower. However, it is one of the most sought after and hunted artefacts, especially by magic users and treasure hunters. For all its deceptive beauty, the Onyx Lotus is immensely powerful, granting its owner a significant (if temporary) boost in magical power. This can be used in emergency situations to save a warlock from certain death; or it can be used to magnify a mage’s power to near godhood for a short period of time; or even used to protect a wizard in his magical experiments. In whatever
